I am a rubbish cook. There, I said it. I suck at cooking because half the time I can't be bothered to do it. It seems like a lot of work for ten minutes of enjoyment, and then there's the mountain of washing up to deal with... I am definitely a 'won't cook'.
Or at least, I was...
Just to put it in context here, I am 26, live alone, and have never had much cause to have to do a lot of cooking. I don't have any young siblings, children, or dinner-party type friends. Just me. So when it comes down to it, I tend to cook because I have to, not because I enjoy it.
All of this changed recently when I discovered the magic and wonder of a slow cooker. It has changed my life. No more messing about with complicated recipes or timings or ingredients, or hours in the kitchen when I've got in from work and can't be bothered to continue working because I just want to chill out: I just whack the stuff in, switch it on, go to work, come home, and sit on my bum feeling very smug until about six o'clock when I open the lid and dish up something delicious.
If it was legal to marry an electrical appliance you would be looking at Mrs.Tesco SC356 Slow Cooker right about now.
In honour of my new slow cooker love, here is a little recipe I want to share because I love it so much! It has come to be known as Pork Thinger and is truly delicious.
Add chopped onions to the pot. I used red because the so-called 'super' market didn't have any white.
Slice an apple, I chose Granny Smith, and put a layer over the onions.
